means you pledge blind allegiance to your governement or country, that would be a dictatorship.
Just like a loving parent or a good friend, will tell you when you're messing up, we as citizens our Constitutionally required to keep our govt in check.
On another note, being a woman in our country makes me extremely grateful to be an American.
As a woman in America I am, in general, the luckiest, most free, best educated and one of the most respected women in the world.
The Navy’s awesome arsenal is nothing without the almost four-hundred thousand soldiers that make it up.
With this tremendous force comes tremendous responsibility.Moreover, if I do well I have an opportunity to receive a scholarship to a college where I can go to broaden my knowledge of the world around me.I can find out great things about my country such as more than 40 years ago we took a hard look at ourselves and said it was wrong to judge a man by the color of his skin or that long ago, brave men gave up their lives to show the strange concept of people governing themselves could work, even in the worst of times.I am proud to be an American because we are the most free country on earth.I know I don't have to bow to any man and I can worship my God in the way and in the place of my choice.I am also proud of my fellow Americans for being able to maintain a free society in a time of terrorism and war. We were bombed in three different places throughout our country and one situation a brave citizen stopped the fourth from happening.Like many people, I am so proud of all the businesses and the employees that stayed in New York after September 11th.I am very proud to be a part of this long and proud tradition of upholding the ideals set forth in the U. It instills a sense of pride and satisfaction that is matched by no other.As a soldier, there are many options as far as what type of soldier you wish to be.For the people, BY the people, that's something to be proud of.No two-bit terrorist can bring us to our knees, despite all who would wish us ill, no country in the history of mankind has been so generous with its wealth, I can write what I believe to be the truth here and in my newspaper without fear of censorship or reprisal, I can vote my conscience without fear of retribution , long ago, brave men gave their very lives to show this strange concept of people governing themselves could work, even in the worst of times, millions around the world dream of living in my country, being a man of your word means more than having an aristocratic name, I can be a lawyer, a farmer or a newspaper reporter and succeed or fail on my own merits.
